Training on citizen engagement in Policy relevant Science, Technology and Innovation


In the framework of the Enlargement and Integration Action (E&IA), the Joint Research Centre is organizing the course “Training on citizen engagement in Policy relevant Science, Technology and Innovation”, which will take place in Sarajevo, BiH, on 12 -13 October. This training course responds to a concrete lack of genuine and legitimate places whereby institutions can explore insights, expectations and imaginaries of citizens in matters of concern to all. This training is concerned with the science for policy realm where engagement of citizens is needed and relevant to ensure quality of policy formulation processes in situations described in the framework of “post-normal science” where “facts [are] uncertain, values in dispute, stakes high and decisions urgent”. Hence, this training will look into participatory approaches to discuss science and technology developments as well as discuss what makes trustful relationships between the scientific community and the public trustworthy. In a nutshell this training offers a hands-on reflection on the theoretical and regulatory basis as well as methods of citizen engagement. It aims at any practitioners that work at the interface of science, society and policy.

The number of place is limited to 25 persons.

Interested persons are invited to send a CV and supporting letter at jrc-sts@jrc.ec.europa.eu. Deadline for application: 20 August 2017
